Pinterest is an online bulletin board – mostly for collecting images of whatever you want your viewers to see. It is popular to make your own boards, and to look at other people’s ideas.
All authors especially should consider making a Pinterest page based on each of their books!
It is free to join and easy to use, and you can also post your pins to Twitter. You can post to Twitter as you repin or pin images, or you can post images when you view them. You can tweet images on a pin-by-pin basis rather than potentially overwhelming your Twitter feed with every pin you make. Your tweet includes a URL that followers can click, which takes them to the pin page at Pinterest each time you share a pin. There are plenty of pictures you could post on there, starting with your book cover then building with anything you see as relevant to your book.
Use Pinterest to make yourself more likely to be discovered, to stay competitive and engage with your customers, and to build your name and products.
Well worth checking out!
